This will be the second year in succession that Spurs have face Fiorentina in Europe and the progress the club has made in that time is very apparent.
The London outfit currently sit second in the Premier League, just two points off the top and very much in the race for the title.
Fiorentina v Tottenham Manager’s View
When Spurs played the Tuscan outfit 12 months ago they were seventh in the table leaving manager Mauricio Pochettino in no doubt about the improvement his young squad has made, telling TottenhamHotspur.com:
It’s always exciting to play in the Europa League and this is an important game in Florence It’s true that it was a difficult period for us when we played against Fiorentina last season. The Capital One Cup Final against Chelsea was just three days after (the second leg) and it was difficult to prepare for that final and keep our focus on the Europa League”
Pochettino’s side are now arguably a much stronger outfit and Spurs will be looking for a first leg victory tonight. Pochettino will make some changes to his side with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris ruled out because of a shoulder injury. The 29 year old was injured towards the end of Sunday’s 2-1 Premier League win at Manchester City and will be replaced by Dutch keeper Michel Vorm.
Top scorer Harry Kane could be rested as Pochettino keeps on eye on the league and Sunday’s FA Cup fifth-round game with Crystal Palace.
However the Argentine coach has named a strong squad with the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Deli Alli, Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela all included, in addition to Kane.
The London outfit have won each of their last 7 games in all competitions and face a Fiorentina team sitting third in Serie A and unbeaten in their last 5 games.
Fiorentina v Tottenham Match Outcome
Fiorentina will be a tough trip for Spurs and it remains to be seen how much emphasis is put on the Europa League with the side pushing for Premier League honours. The side however, is playing some of the best football of their season, and a win last week against Manchetser City will have done wonders for confidence levels.
A draw would not be a bad result for Tottenham, with a view to bringing the Italian side back to White Hart Lane.
Go for the draw at 3/1, which looks a touch a value all things considered.
